Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
Recently the engine started making a loud noise and began to sound like a diesel. I thought I had rod problems and took it to a Ford dealer. They said that the engine drive chain needed to be replaced but they would not repair it due to the high mileage and they wanted $8,000 to install a new engine. We like the car and would like to keep it. We live in San Diego. Can this repair be made and how much should it cost? Any recommendations on where to have it repaired? Thanks.
have the same problem?
